Road to the World Cup, well short walk, train, tube and then a plane

With the country being hit by the tail end of hurricane Bertha it’s not a day to be going out. It’s a day to sit by the window with a hot cup of decent coffee watching the rain come down and the parts of the world brave enough to venture out, to pass by.

It’s a day to do a bit of housework, general admin and other life stuff that needs to be done. Planning my World Cup excursion is one thing that can also be done.

Filling in the paperwork the other night for the has made it seem more real. Looking for flights even more so.

So it’s a time to reflect on the journey that has led me to this point. A journey across time, six years, where did it go? And space. All over the UK, Europe and North America.  I am now a world expert on leisure centres located in the not so good part of town,  the limited choice presented by leisure centre cafes… err… I think I’ll have the chips and pre-decimalisation Klix machines that serve that brown substance that’s meant to taste like coffee.

And whilst there, i’ve taken a few pictures.
